And for my card I chose this one for my card


She is called "Make a Wish" and you will find her here, and I printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used one of Nestabilitie Dies to cut her out and the mounted her on a fancy one for the mount out of pink card. I have used a same die design for the sentiment but used a smaller one to cut it out.
The base card is a white one and it measures 6.50"x 6.50" and the first mount is the same pink card as the mount for the image, I have then used the backing  paper that came with the image and you will find it here.
I placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, and the final flourish I have placed three pink pearls in the top right and left hand corners and the bottom left.

The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of blue card I then used Maya's three "Sofiere" papers for my layers and and along the edges of each I have used a similar hole design border punch from Martha Stewart as the one for the mount under the image.
I wrapped a piece of white wrinkle organza ribbon with a blue silk one on top around the left hand side and placed my mounted image in the middle, and created a bow from the whit ribbon and placed it on top of the blue silk in the center.

Playing with Tonic Dies

Good Morning Crafters, yesterday after experiencing a big problem with my ebosser I decided to give it a go and make sure it was still going to work (I managed to get a embossing folder stuck in my ebosser and hubby had a terrible job getting it out, and even had to dismantle it to do so) and as I had just received these new tonic dies I felt that I could create two birthday cards.
I placed the die on a piece of A4 card in the middle towards the right and then fan it through the machine, and then folded the card in two and placed a piece of colour card behind the cut out. I then used the flower dies to make the flowers by cutting them out 3 times and then coloured them with inkpads with the colour of of the card that I had put behind the cut out. Then used my embossing tool to create shape and then layered them up and placed them on the flowers of the cut out, and in the center I have placed a coloured pearl.
The final thing was the sentiment stamped on the card.
These Cards are to be entered in the following Challenges:-
